Dogwood Healing Arts treats the following conditions:
Chinese Medicine views the body and mind/spirit as two sides of the same coin. Physical symptoms and emotional symptoms are both manifestations of an imbalance in the body’s essential energy. Acupuncture can have a powerful effect on restoring emotional balance, reducing stress and creating an overall sense of well-being.
Common mental/emotional conditions treated: anxiety, depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), insomnia, anger/irritability, stress, addiction, and dissociation.
Pain and Sports Medicine
This is what Chinese Medicine is best known for addressing. Like a beaver dam in a river, pain is a block in the body’s flow of energy. Acupuncture removes the dam and re-establishes the smooth flow of energy, thus eliminating pain.
Common conditions treated: migraines, neck and back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, IT Band syndrome, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis, TMJ, arthritis, acute sprains and strains.
Because acupuncture focuses on re-establishing health rather than treating symptoms it can address a wide range of conditions.

Ears, Eyes, Nose, Throat: seasonal allergies, sinus pressure, ringing in the ears, sore throat, vertigo/dizziness
